Agriculture Day

Agriculture Day 2017 was a big hit with students at Newton Parrish! Students had the opportunity to participate and see many things they don't often encounter with living in the city. They got to climb inside large tractors, pet pigs, sheep, baby chicks and bunnies, go on a hay ride and learn about many of the contributions farmers make to our community.

Baxter the Bobcat

Student voice is an important component of the Leader in Me process. Last year our Student Lighthouse Team decided we needed an official mascot for our school. They worked hard to make that happen with a student only election. This year our Student Lighthouse Team proposed we give our Bobcat a name. Students proposed a list of names. We took that list and narrowed it down to 3 possible names. On Friday, May 12th our Student Lighthouse Team held a student only election for all students to have an opportunity to vote for the mascot name they liked best. Our students chose Baxter.
